Overview

Juan Eberhard is a macroeconomist whose research focuses on the connection between immigration, inequality, and human capital accumulation. His dissertation, "Immigration, Human Capital an d the Welfare of Natives," develops a general equilibrium model and calibrates it to U.S. data over the last four decades to identify the impact of immigration on natives. He finds that immigration has a modest negative short run effect on wages, but it has a large positive long run effect on human capital accumulation.
